Carolyn's Conspiracy Cocktails

As I prepped myself for the upcoming Conspiracy Con, I thought it would be appropriate to have some conspiracy cocktails.

As I thought about it, I developed a few rules. Conspiracy cocktails:

  • They should use as many ingredients as possible
  • Absinthe must be an ingredient
  • Obscure, arcane ingredients are preferred
  • Color should be black or unnatural
  • Conflicting and negating flavors aren't a problem. If you don't like the taste, keep adding ingredients until you do.

So herewith: Carolyn's Conspiracy Cocktails (CCC -- which if you squint could look like 666). The preparation for all except the Conspiracy Coffee is the same: Shake with ice and serve on the rocks or straight up with a splash of soda.


2 parts tequila
1/2 part each:

  • Midori
  • absinthe
  • blackberry brandy or crème de cassis
  • blue curacao
  • chocolate liqueur
  • lime juice
  • orange juice
